When the South Korean phone maker announced its flagship handset back in March we knew that there will be more color options besides the White Forst and the Black Mist body liveries. The same happened with its predecessor, the Galaxy S3, which was made available in more color options soon after its market debut. Anyway, today we’ve learned that AT&T will be exclusively selling the Samsung Galaxy S4 in Aurora Red. That’s what the official press statement of the US-based carrier is revealing.
From now on, the Samsung Galaxy S4 will be available in three color options at AT&T: Black Mist, White Frost, and the new Aurora Red. I guess that there will be a lot of girls out there who will want to get their hands on the Aurora Red Samsung Galaxy S4, but we are also hoping that the South Korean phone maker will soon make more body liveries available.
There are no price differences between the Samsung Galaxy S4 Aurora Red an the other two color options. As you probably know, if you agree on a two-year contract with AT&T you will be able to pick-up the handset for a mere $199.99, but if you are not the commitment type you can also purchase it for $639.99.
The body color is the only difference between the Aurora Red Samsung Galaxy S4 and its Black Mist and White Frost brothers.
As you’ve probably guessed, we are talking about the Galaxy S4 I9505 model, not the I9500 variant that packs an Exynos 5 Octa chipset with four Cortex A15 cores clocked at 1.6 GHz (used for the tasks that require more processing power) and four Cortex A7 cores clocked at 1.2 GHz (used for the basic task and to improve the battery life of the smartphone), plus a PowerVR SGX 544MP3 GPU.
The Samsung Galaxy S4 I9505 is underpinned by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 chipset based on four Krait 300 cores clocked at 1.9 GHz and an Adreno 320 GPU. Just like the international version, the AT&T Samsung Galaxy S4 boasts a 5-inch full HD Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels with Gorilla Glass 3 protection, resulting in a pixel density of 441 ppi.
The Samsung Galaxy S4 also comes with 2 GB of RAM and 16/32/64 GB of internal storage that can be expanded with up to 64 GB courtesy of the microSD card slot.
In terms of connectivity options, the Samsung Galaxy S4 comes with support for HSDPA, 42.2 Mbps; HSUPA, 5.76 Mbps; LTE, Cat3, 50 Mbps UL, 100 Mbps DL, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, dual-band, DLNA, Wi-Fi Direct, Wi-Fi hotspot, Bluetooth v4.0 with A2DP, EDR, LE, NFC chip, IR blaster, and microUSB v2.0 (MHL 2), USB On-the-go, USB Host.
Just like the smartphone rivals that already hit the market (see Sony Xperia Z and LG Optimus G Pro) the Samsung Galaxy S4 is sporting a 13 megapixel camera with autofocus and LED flash. Before the two aforementioned features, the Galaxy S4 camera also comes with full HD video recording capabilities, Dual Shot, Simultaneous HD video and image recording, geo-tagging, touch focus, face and smile detection, image stabilization, and HDR, while the front-facing camera has a 2 megapixel sensor, also with 1080p@30p video recording support.
The Samsung Galaxy S4 is boasting a 2600 mAh battery, while being 136.6 mm tall, 69.8 mm wide, 7.9 mm thin, and weighing only 130 grams.
The flagship device of the South Korea-based company comes pre-loaded with Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean customized with Sammy’s proprietary TouchWiz Nature UX interface which integrates features like Smart stay, Smart pause, Smart scroll, Air View, and Gesture Controls.
